Where: Student Center Room 205
Barbara Hogan

When Barbara Hogan joined the African National Congress, she made a unusual choice for a white South African to fight the apartheid regime. For her protests, she was indicted for high treason and sentenced to 10 years of prison. She continued her activism inside the prison. After being let out, she and Ahmed Kathrada experienced an electric chemistry between them and forged a powerful personal partnership. As part of the new South African government, she began to fight the AIDS epidemic with science when most of the government and society refused to recognize the scope of the public health catastrophe. She served as the Minister of Health and is also the former Minister of Public Enterprise, where she continued to build up the strength of South Africa for all its citizens.
